Icelandic Chanteuse Lay Low Brings "Lovely, Twangy Tales" (Paste) to NYC's The Living Room on 2/16, and Rockwood Music Hall on 2/17
U.S. Debut 'Farewell Good Night's Sleep' Out 3/9 (Loo Records)
Lay Low - the Icelandic singer/songwriter who Lucinda Williams called "by far one of the best new artists I've seen in years" - hits New York City in February to debut her new album, 'Farewell Good Night's Sleep,' at two club showcases: Feb. 16 at The Living Room and Feb. 17 at Rockwood Music Hall.
Lay Low (nee Lovisa Elisabet Sigrunardottir) draws inspiration from an earlier generation of iconic American female country stars including Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton and Kitty Wells, yet she imbues American folk, blues and country with her own fresh perspective. Called "the Icelandic Patsy Cline" by Paste Magazine, the 27-year-old previously garnered attention in the U.S. with a song on the hit show "Grey's Anatomy" and a performance on KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic."Lay Low will tour the U.S. extensively in 2010.
